* CaptainAmerica was worshiped by a tribe of Eskimos after WWII while he was still frozen in a block of Arctic ice. Part of why he eventually thawed was because Namor, furious at what he perceived to be the Eskimo's idiocy in their choice of religion, hurled Cap's ice block into the ocean, and the currents pulled it into warmer climes. A much later story had a young man of the tribe utterly bewildered that his grandfather ''still'' worshipped Captain America.

* In ''Videogame/{{Destiny}}'', the Vex, an already advanced and incomprehensible race of robots, came across the Black Heart - a fragment of the Darkness ''even more advanced and incomprehensible they they were''. They saw no other option than to worship it.

* Depending on [[WhatMeasureIsANonHuman your interpretation of "object"]], the Ewoks bowing down to worship C-3PO in ''ReturnOfTheJedi'' counts as this.
* The Nibiruans in the opening sequence of ''StarTrekIntoDarkness'' begin worshipping the starship Enterprise after seeing it rise out of the water. In keeping with the Prime Directive, a big deal is made out of keeping the starship out of the view of the primitive Nibiruans who have "barely invented the wheel".

* ''MadMaxBeyondThunderdome'' features an isolated tribe AfterTheEnd who worships a jet airliner as their personal Mecca and its pilot, Captain Walker, as a God who will guide them to "Tomorrow-morrow Land"--that is, the world of skyscrapers and urban life that no longer exists.
* The fetishisation of V8 engines in ''Film/MadMaxFuryRoad'', seen when War Boys gather their steering wheels from an altar-like pile (Immortan Joe of course plays right into this, due to his GodGuise).

\n* The Kastom people of Tanna, Vanuatu, had a myth about a deity who had travelled to a distant land and married a powerful woman. So, when Queen Elizabeth II visited with her husband Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, in tow, they took him to be that deity and to this day consider him to be a divine being.

* The ''VideoGame/{{Fallout}}'' series features the Brotherhood Of Steel, a militaristic technology-worshipping cult. Their creed compels them to preserve civilization, but how they apply their beliefs varies depending on the locality and time period. Some seek to prevent the misuse of technology by outsiders, all the while defending communities and helping them develop; others simply hoard technology and devote themselves to the elimination of mutants, regardless of whether or not they are actually hostile. By 2277, much of the original Brotherhood have become xenophobic nutjobs who are all too willing to forcefully take anything more sophisticated than a pipe rifle from any wastelanders they encounter.

* The ''VideoGame/{{Fallout}}'' series features the Brotherhood Of Steel, a technology-praising cult. Most critics agree that they worship technology, not with sermons and faith, but by incorporating it into every aspect of their lives. Their way of life revolves around collecting the advanced technology that was spawned as the cold war escalated into pure hate, paving the way for technological progress (and unethical testing) from sentient robots to PowerArmor to BrainInAJar to nuclear-based 3D-molecular printers, all technology that could have been used to prosper but was ignored in favor of war. The Brotherhood wants it ALL. Unfortunately, how they apply this technology depends on the leader; by 2277, half the brotherhood has devolved into xenophobic nutjobs similar to the Enclave, while the other half are sensible enough to protect the colonies but refuse to trade anything beyond military equipment.
