engadget reports that the HAL (Hybrid Assistive Limb) by Cyberdyne is about to get really real. Reportedly, the company is linking up with Daiwa House in order to "begin mass production" of the cybernetic bodysuit. The suit, which apparently allows someone who can normally lift 220 pounds on a leg press to hoist 396 pounds, will be on sale for a meagre $4,200.
