* ''Literature/RevelationSpaceSeries'' by Creator/AlastairReynolds: The Conjoiners have this. In an early war against unaltered humans, they would forcibly implant the equipment into their prisoners, who generally thought "I am everyone! I know everything! Awesome!"

* ''Film/DemolitionMan'': In the future, people use this for having sex. The idea of doing it the normal way disgusts them.

Electronic Telepathy 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.

This form of telepathy is different from others in that it does not allow MindReading, since a person must be actively transmitting a signal in order for another to receive it. However, is possible for an enterprising cyborg to "mind hack" another user of an implant and monitor their thoughts without their permission, similar to infecting a computer with spyware.

* In ''Anime/GhostInTheShell'' this is one of the many advantages of having a cyberbrain. Characters can communicate with each other without physically speaking, which is useful if you are trying to keep quiet to avoid detection or eavesdroppers. Of course, wirelessly broadcast connections are open to being spied on, so for very important conversations cyborgs sometimes directly connect to one another using cables.

In one episode of ''Stand Alone Complex'', Batou and the Major even keep a conversation hidden from the Tachikomas by hiding their cyber-telepathic communication and using their actual lips to have a completely different conversation--at the same time!
