* ''TabletopGame/{{Shadowrun}}'' most hackers have to use a hacking rig called a cyberdeck which had to be connected by a [[BrainComputerInterface datajack]]. Then came the Otaku, kids who had a mysterious ability to interface with machinery and [[TheAlternet the matrix]] with nothing but a datajack, no extra equipment needed. Then the Crash 2.0 happened, and the Matrix was relaunched in a wireless format, and [[EverythingIsOnline practically everything]] in connected, even things that shouldn't be. The Otaku disappeared, replaced by all disappeared when the wired internet got blown up, and were replaced by Technomancers, who's brains have an equally mysterious ability to access the new wireless internet by thought alone. In addition, they have access to the Resonance. Nobody is quite sure what it is, but the best guess is that it's the raw "stuff" of the matrix, giving technomancers strange, impossible-on-paper abilities, including making simple AIs called sprites.

** Magneto manages to technically become this to the Sentinals in ''Film/XMenDaysOfFuturePast'' by wrapping steel bars inside them while they are being transported in order to gain control over them. How he gets them to fire their weapons is another matter.
