price range at least? if you want it to mimic the human arm it will cost a lot, and whats your experience with electronics and programming?

You could install force sensors in a long sleeved shirt.

Just mimic your motions, not like a force enhancing suit, right?

Attach potentiometers to a bunch of sticks, then tape the sticks to your arm. When you bend your arm, the potentiometer value changes, and you can send that to the ADC of a microcontroller.
