HAL: Iron Man Suit

The Japanese have managed to turn Tony Stark's fictional body suit into reality, albeit without flight capabilities or weapons of mass destruction. The Cyberdyne [[xref:|HAL]] exoskeleton can multiply the wearer's body strength by a factor of 2 to 10, the [[xref:|company claims]]. Available only in Japan, HAL is currently used by people with disabilities caused by stroke, spinal injuries, or weak muscles. It's recommended for indoor use only, so discard any superhero fantasies you might have.
