ElectronicTelepathy or ''e-telepathy'' is a sub-trope of {{Telepathy}}. In most cases characters using telepathic powers will do so by using some kind of supernatural force or a highly evolved biological mechanism that comes thanks to being a SufficientlyAdvancedAlien. However, in some cases a character will have no natural or supernatural telepathic ability and instead use a NeuralInterface to gain this power. In this form of telepathy, thoughts are converted from impulses in the brain (electric activity produced by neuron reaction potentials) into digital signals that can then be broadcast artificially to another e-telepath using radio waves or some other form of wireless communication. Obviously, this can lead to MentalFusion or even a HiveMind just as non-technological telepathy can.

* In the short story "Tableau" by James White, one side in an interstellar war develops a "mentacom" device that allows a ship's crew to communicate mentally, after finding battle noise too disruptive to vocal communication. When two pilots, one from each side, end up marooned together after a battle, the mentacom makes it possible for them to communicate with each other and make the first steps toward a peace.

* ''Anime/MobileSuitGundam'' and its many sequels has the Psycommu ("'''Psy'''chic '''Commu'''nicator") system, a machine designed to pick up the psychic emanations from Newtypes and use them as a means of communication. This allows a Newtype to control a properly equipped machine by thought alone, and is usually used to explain how the pilots are able to control the various kinds of AttackDrones.

* In ''Literature/AncillaryJustice'', this is used to link the cybernetic ancillaries to their ship’s HiveMind and used in a similar manner by the emporer, who is a HiveMind of linked clones. To a lesser extent, Radchaai ships and station can also use this to read the perceptions and emotions sent by implants in their human inhabitants, and ability Breq keeps from her time as a ship.
