* The Mechanic from the ''WildCards'' series, the hitch being he has to physically interface by cutting himself and putting the wound to the machine. Fortunately he also heals real fast.
* Angie Mitchell from WilliamGibson's ''Literature/CountZero'' and ''[[SprawlTrilogy Mona Lisa Overdrive]]'' had her nervous system modified with bioware designed by [=AI=]s which enabled her to connect to the series' equivalent of the internet by thought alone and granted her considerable hacking skills.

* Mitchell Hundred from ''ComicBook/ExMachina''. Due to living in New York city, he suffered a sensory overload seconds after getting his powers and blacked out half of Manhattan by screaming "Shut up!" Afterwards, his brain readjusted - first he could only listen to technology he touched, then he could command them, then he could interact with any machine he could see. He can control technology ranging from complex electronics to those as simple as a handgun. [[spoiler: A bow and arrow is too simple though.]]

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

to:

* 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".
