* ZigZagging in ''WesternAnimation/TheSpectacularSpiderMan'' episode "Shear Strength". Dr. Octopus hacks into and controls satellites, cell phone GPS locators, street lights, even a coffee shop cash register all because they have computers. However, his big plan is to get some Homeland Security codes, which are on a closed network; to get those, he has to [[IHaveYourWife kidnap Gwen so that he can blackmail Captain Stacy]].

Added DiffLines:

* [[ZigZagged Zig-zagged]] in ''Literature/ArtemisFowl'': The C-Cube can access satellites, hack a phone by touching it, etc. However, it cannot access a closed system for plot reasons. It can, however, access the LEP without any problem, and hack bank accounts while in said closed system.

* In ''Series/CriminalMinds'' there is very little information that Garcia can't find online even when there seems to be no plausible reason for that information to be in any type of searchable database or online at all.

* Forget toasters, add {{Sex Bot}}s to the list of things that may be hackable and subsequently try to kill you, as described [[https://www.techspot.com/news/70946-cybersecurity-researcher-warns-future-sex-robots-could-kill.html here]].

* There are also actually some limited versions of this technology in existence now, or under research, but they are usually passive in nature. EMESCAT systems, which have existed since the Cold War, are designed to remotely gather information (such as, say, reading what's on your CRT computer monitor) from the electromagnetic radiation given off by a computer. This generally takes the form of a sensitive EM sensor near the computer in question, such as in a van across the street, or the other side of a hotel wall. Superconducting Quantum Interface Devices (also called [=SQUID=]s), are similar devices that are currently (mostly?) [[Film/StrangeDays theoretical]]. These latter would generally depend on direct physical connections to the computer, but ranged versions have been proposed.

* In ''Film/ShortCircuit 2'', Johnny 5 replaced his shoulder-mounted laser with a radio that can hack things. He uses it to shut down cars by triggering their burglar alarms and pilot remote-controlled model airplanes. However, in the last few minutes of the movie where the villain is escaping in a boat, Johnny 5 tries to use it on the boat, but [[PhlebotinumBreakdown it doesn't work]] because ''it is not radio controlled.''

Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/SecondChance2016'': Since he never really leaves his home, Otto is usually used as a problem-fixer by using his computer skills to manipulate technology miles away. He's been shown "hacking" into police cams, mechanical cranes, or anything else really if the plot requires it.

* In ''WesternAnimation/TheMagicSchoolBus'' one of the kids writes a computer program to do all of the school opening tasks such as make coffee, open the doors, and ''raise the flag on the flagpole''. Many viewers note the kids spent longer doing that then fixing their mistakes than if they just did all the tasks themselves.
