* In ''Manga/MahouTsukaiNoYome'', this is the product of Magus Craft, which uses magical power as a power-source rather than electricity.
* The plot of ''{{Manga/Devilman}} vs. {{Manga/Cyborg009}}'' involves a MadScientist working for Black Ghost building a cyborg body for a demon to posess, in hopes of making the perfect killing machine.

* In ''Manga/MahouSenseiNegima'' technology seems to have been more or less fully integrated with magic. Magic Guns are considered antiques. The local RobotGirl runs partially on magic, and there's an entire Magic ''Internet'' that can be accessed by magic books ''or'' computers complete with program, hacking, and virus spells. Not to mention Magical Flying Warships such as the [[CoolShip Paru-sama]][[labelnote:Specification]]A Goldfish-Style Aerofish with a high-propulsion-pentagram-18-prayer-spirit engine and anti-pirate military-grade armaments[[/labelnote]]

* ''Literature/TheLaundrySeries'' is built on the premise that magic is a branch of applied mathematics where NP=P, and computers are machines for doing lots of calculations ''very quickly''. The end result is such inventions as light-bending '[[HandOfGlory hands of glory]]' optimized to use pigeon's feet, and if properly aligned can make lasers. Also video cameras that can convert carbon to silicon (Gorgon's Stare), which tends to [[YourHeadAsplode make things explode]]. Please note that while special skills that anyone can learn are needed to construct these devices and the accurate aiming and firing of a HandOfGlory/laser is described as taking some experience, all the Gorgon's Stare requires is to look through a pair of special lenses and press a button. This is actually more dangerous than it sounds: anyone with a computer and some programming talent can summon demons, or out-and-out {{Eldritch Abomination}}s. ''By accident.'' Series protagonist Bob Howard was forcibly recruited because it turned out his latest project would have inadvertently summoned Nyarlathotep. Yes, [[CthulhuMythos THAT]] Nyarlathotep.

* Eldar gear in ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}'' is a unique blend of highly-advanced technology and psychic "sorcery" -- their robots, for example, are well-crafted frames animated by the spirit of a fallen warrior held in a crystal. Their core construction material is Wraithbone, which is basically concentrated, solidified psychic energy. It can apparently assume a lot of properties, from being hard as metal to as flexible as soft plastic, with conductivity being easily manipulated. Chaos forces in the same setting use [[BlackMagic black]] [[{{Magitek}} magitech]] to create [[ArtifactOfDoom their most powerful works]], such as [[DemonicPossession daemonically-possessed]] tanks or HumongousMecha..

**
Chaos forces in the same setting use [[BlackMagic black]] [[{{Magitek}} magitech]] to create [[ArtifactOfDoom their most powerful works]], such as [[DemonicPossession daemonically-possessed]] tanks or HumongousMecha..HumongousMecha. The Dark Mechanicus and their Hereteks are often the sources of most of the Daemon Engines. Meanwhile the Iron Warriors (who have close ties to the Dark Mechanicus) are the biggest employers of Daemon Engines and possessed wargear.
** Obliterators are Chaos Space Marines who are infected by a Warp-born virus, fusing them with their weapons into a horrifying mound of daemon, flesh and screeching metal. The end result is a humongous Chaos Space Marine that can morph any weapon he wants out of his flesh to deal with any enemy in sight, as well as having all the benefits of being a Daemon without actually ascending. Unsurprisingly they have a connection to the Iron Warriors, who are noted to have an abnormally high number of them.


Added DiffLines:

** The Weapons used by the various factions of the Inquisition tends to veer into this a lot, ranging from bound daemon weapons (to make them "safe" for use) to holy relics of past Saints that somehow grant implausible effects. The Sisters of Battle are the biggest source of this, as a lot of the abilities they have (Acts of Faith, Living Saints) would be considered Heresy if any other faction within the Imperium were using it. Grey Knights join in on the fun as well, with holy bullets inscribed with runes and the names of daemons to better kill them. Unlike the Sisters of Battle, they at least have some plausible justification for this (daemons are actually weak to having their true names written down and towards silver stuff).


Added DiffLines:

** Averted by the Tau, who do not believe in the supernatural despite everything to the contrary in their universe. This is due to them having almost no presence in the Warp (in a universe where the only other ones with no ties are inanimate objects and souless people) and thus cannot actually utilize much of the warp-based tech in the universe. This has caused them to write off some of the magitek as "superstitious nonsense" cooked up by the other races as propaganda. [[spoiler: They have exactly one character that employs Magitek, but unknowingly. Commander Farsight's battlesuit is modified to be able to wield the Dawn Blade in close combat, but unknown to him the Dawn Blade drains the life of those killed by it and give it to the bearer, and might possibly be a Daemon Weapon that he simply cannot hear the temptations of.]]

Added DiffLines:

** Inventors on Kaladesh turn out all kinds of devices and automatons fueled by magical aether distilled from the plane's atmosphere. It's the only way most of its residents use magic, since more traditional magic is a rare inborn gift and considered dangerous by the ruling consulate.

** Similarly, the [=StrikerS=] antagonist's primary cannon fodder consists of MechaMooks that are unique in Mid-Childa due to their lacking any magical capabilities at all and actively projecting fields that dampen magic around them.

* Creator/PiersAnthony's ''Literature/IncarnationsOfImmortality'' is based on a society much like our own, only Fate, Time and Death (among others) are incarnated in humans (sometimes against the will of said humans), magic is real, and in the future timeline technology and magic merge to a large degree. (Justified in that "magic" is said to be based on a "fifth fundamental force", making it essentially an application of physics in that universe). At one point, the series states plainly that anything magic can accomplish, technology can do too, and vice versa.
** His 'Xanth' series has Com Pewter, a piece of bizarre, self-aware, occasionally malicious electronics that can literally alter reality within its area of influence.
