Cars, planes, phones, computers, [[MeatMoss buildings]], [[LivingShip space ships]], and everything else required for a proper SciFi story will be provided in the form of something that is warm, moist, skooshy and drips goo everywhere. Often, this will go so far as to include a convenient thought-based interface. [[{{Biomanipulation}} Manipulation of organic matter]] may be part of the technology as a whole, or even what enabled the tech in the first place. Advanced [[{{Nanomachines}} nanotechnology]] will often be depicted in a similar fashion.

Civilizations who use this technology are also frequently users of SufficientlyAdvancedBambooTechnology. Depending on the aesthetic choices of the depiction, the organic technology may seem [[AmbiguousRobots Ambiguously Robotic]] as well.

* In [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d-xREfdihtY this]] Season 3 sneak peak for ''WesternAnimation/RickAndMorty'', "Pickle" Rick resorts to taking apart vermin to provide him with mobility. He is first seen using several roach bodies which he manipulate by stimulating nerves with his tongue. He later upgrades to rat parts, which are attached to him by an apparatus that also largely consists of the remains of rodents and insects.

* Several races of ''{{Talislanta}}'' use plant-based technologies, including the barge-forts of the Green Aeriads (with live viridia trees for masts) and the d'oko lily plants used as houses by the Green Men.
* This is one of approximately 9000 options for HumongousMecha in one ''{{Mekton}}'' expansion.

* Creator/JohnWCampbell's ''[[Literature/ThePlaneteers The Double Minds]]'' is set on Ganymede, where electricity was never discovered. Light bulbs are powered by fluorescent bacteria and cars have muscles instead of motors. Unlike most examples of OrganicTechnology, the story clearly states that Ganymedian gadgets are a poor substitute for electric-powered technology. A bit of an UnbuiltTrope, considered that it was written in 1937.

** Interestingly, it's specifically noted that Amnion biotech is ''much'' less efficient than human technology, even though individual pieces are more advanced. It's for this reason that they haven't tried to assimilate humanity into their hivemind: they know that if it comes to a straight-up war they could not match our production capacity.
