* Young Micah Sanders from ''Series/{{Heroes}}''.

* Young ''Series/{{Heroes}}''. ** Micah Sanders from ''Series/{{Heroes}}''.Sanders. He can "communicate with machines and electronics". His power seems to require physical contact with the device and a certain level of concentration, after which the changes he wishes to make are almost instantaneous. Using a cell phone, Micah can bypass the need for physical contact, at least in cases where the target device is controlled by a networked computer. In season three, when Micah demonstrates his ability to Tracy, it can be seen that he does not physically touch his computer when using his ability. When asked to rig an election, for example, Micah is able to reprogram the entire voting computer network, which covers the entire city, in roughly a minute, though doing so weakens him.

* The limited use of this ability is one of many talents that makes the [[PsychoForHire psychopathic]] villain Dread from TadWilliams' ''Literature/{{Otherland}}'' so scary. In his case, it manifests as telekinesis that operates on the level of individual electrons, allowing him to alter the state of an electronic device independent of its programming. He uses it on an instinctual level, and refers to it as his "twist".

It's not rare to see technopaths bringing formerly inanimate objects to life (e.g. toasters moving around and firing ProjectileToast at disgruntled users), which is much easier to do if EverythingIsOnline.

** Some [[GadgeteerGenius Gadgeteers]] have a more limited form of this, in that they can [[PsychicPowers 'feel' the condition of the gadget]] they are working on (a type of psychometry), and even manipulate it to some degree. Loophole, who can use this to become an InstantExpert with almost any weapon or vehicle, applies this to TakeAThirdOption in her sophomore Combat Final, by taking control of the simulator itself.

** The 3rd Selfdemonstrating/{{Loki}} exhibited technomantic affinity in their [[ComicBook/LokiAgentOfAsgard solo series]], of course in this case this means actual magic. We don't know exactly how they do it, but they claimed that it's easy because ''technology is very gullible'' so it might involve [[ConsummateLiar lying]]. There is even a possible future version of Loki who evolved into a ContagiousAI.

* Emma's friend in the ''Series/MutantX'' episode "Interface" is a technopath. She further gets enhanced by GSA to become a WetwareCPU but is restored at the end of the episode. According to Emma, she is the only New Mutant who managed to counteract the effects of the [[PowerNullifier subdermal governor]] (presumably, she disabled it before they even activated the device).

According to Emma, she is the only New Mutant who managed to counteract the effects of the [[PowerNullifier subdermal governor]] (presumably, she disabled it before they even activated the device). Many years before, both of them used to use their powers to cheat bartenders out of free drinks with Emma's [[TheEmpath empathy]] and, when the bartender eventually caught on, use her friend's power to shut off the lights and run away.
