* The development of this is a major plot point in ''Fanfic/EquestriaAcrossTheMultiverse'': While Equestria has some magitek, including the Portal Casters used for dimensional travel that kickstarts the plot, it takes off big time when they encounter the world ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyTales'' is set in. While having very little overt magic, they do have far more advanced technology than Equestria Prime does. After FirstContact is made and Ponyland enters the Alliance, development on combining Equestria Prime's advanced magic with their advanced technology creates a gigantic technology boom. This also includes superweapons for dealing with {{Kaiju}} level threats, such as Seiryu (a Magitek Mechagodzilla) and the Great Harmony (a gigantic flying super battleship). Things only increase from there as more and more worlds join the Alliance and pool their knowledge and resources.

* ''Literature/ReleaseThatWitch'': Downplayed through most of the story. Rather than creating technology powered by magic, Roland employs the magical abilities of the various witches he allies with to help in the creation mundane real world technology like firearms, steam engines, bikes, central heating, plumbing systems and so. Its eventually revealed ancient witches [[spoiler:and the current Demons]] developed actual magic based technology however, like PowersAsPrograms magic stones.

* In a subscription-only section of the ''Webcomic/{{Drowtales}}'' website, there's an on-going story arc about the Drow society 100 000 years in the future (from the main story's point), Space Age, where mana powers and controls EVERYTHING (including but not limited to spaceship flight, weapons, wormhole travel, faster-than-light communications, their internet...), to the point where their first encounter with "Earth humans" goes undetected because their traditional sensors are incapable of detecting objects that are not infused with mana, although one of the characters eventually creates bio-signature detectors to good effect.

* The level of chakra research in ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'' gets taken to this level by ''Manga/{{Boruto}}'''s time. For instance, the full-size summoning scrolls in ''Naruto'' have been shrunk down to tiny proportions in ''Boruto'' and can be launched via a portable device that will automatically summon whatever was stored in it immediately after launch. In other words, at least one type of magic present in ''Naruto'' has developed beyond PowersAsPrograms and straight to Powers as Apps. The setting at large has also developed from a blurry MedievalStasis straight to the present, with chakra counterparts to air travel, television, video games, laptop computers (including ''the Internet''), construction equipment able to make high-rise skyscrapers, and smartphones. The inside of a typical house in the Hidden Leaf Village in Boruto's time is nearly indistinguishable from what you might expect in a middle-class house in the 21st-century United States.

* ''Literature/TheFlawInAllMagic'': Most technology uses ancryst, crystals which move away from any magical field. This is much more energy-efficient and cheaper than using single-purpose magic; a levitation spell, for example, would cost far more than lining a tunnel with generic magical fields and letting the natural reaction of the ancryst crystals propel a platform.

* ''Series/{{Ghosted}}'' has the Cronos machine from “The Machine”. Built in the early 1800's, it was designed as an experimental medical treatment intended to enhance people’s life spans. However, it’s powered by a cursed South American tree containing evil spirits which induce invincibility. This combination makes it an ImmortalityInducer that steals the blood and life force of people placed upon it and allows them to be absorbed by the machine’s owner, making them immortal.

* In ''TabletopGame/ArsMagica'', this doesn't canonically exist except in the dreams of some mad [[GadgeteerGenius Verditii]], but it ''did'' exist in the past in the form of the Mechanica of Heron, which can be rediscovered. More interestingly, though, ''Transforming Mythic Europe'' gives several examples of how magic can complement or replace technology, such as a circular stone that can be made to turn by magic. Perhaps the most terrifyingly-powerful item that a wizard could invent would be a magical printing press, allowing books of Hermetic knowledge to be copied and disseminated in minutes instead of seasons.

* Some anthropologists have actually defined magic as a type of pseudotechnology as it works on a perception of the laws of the universe rather than on a supplication of supernatural beings. That is the comparison with concepts of the supernatural is only the incidental one that both claim to be at least capable of affecting the universe in unusual way, but magic comes from the magician's ingenuity and is thus in a way no different then an engineer's "magic" which also as it happens has "fantastical" results but was built upon repeated experiments.

** For instance, steel is basically carbonized iron which means that a molten sword must be smothered in biological products. Imagine then what comes next: "This sword was bathed in the blood of [[VirginSacrifice a virgin sacrificed]] to the WarGod." Damascus Steel in particular has turned out to follow Clarke's Law surprisingly closely. We have now reproduced the superior quality of Damascus Steel with the mystical power of the 'carbon nanotube'.

** The Dark Eldar and the Necrons' technology are also aversions. Their tech doesn't make use of psychic power. It's just really, ''really'' advanced.

** The Dark Eldar and the Necrons' technology are also aversions. Their tech doesn't make use of psychic power. It's just really, ''really'' advanced. This is because the Dark Eldar, while a psychic race, cannot use their inborn gifts or else Slaanesh will start tearing at their souls. Necrons, on the other hand, are completely soulless and their gods were of the material universe.
