Human Mech is a mech type vehicle which is enabled using tech. The Human Mech was the first mech designed and announced for Starbound. It allows players to move, drill and attack in a mechanized suit.An early version of it was included on the FAQ page, in the question
<– Will I be able to ride this?
It was later updated to the new version of the Mech, which was shown in a daily update by Tiy.  Soon after Rho shared the new animation on Twitter, revealing the name as well as its origin. The name came from the naming syntax that Rhopunzel uses for versions of work, and the filename "mechx5c-1" was one that stood out as 'cool'.
The mech was later redesigned to change the view from a straight ahead to a semi-side view to aestetically match the art style for other objects.
