* ''Series/StargateAtlantis'' had one example: when Rodney accelerated his own evolution in ''Tao of Rodney'', he gained psychic powers, among other things. They were revealed to the team in a skirmish with the Genii where Rodney won the battle for them by thinking "wouldn't it be awesome if suddenly the Genii troopers' weapons jammed?" Guess what happened.

* The now-deleted[[labelnote:*]]In short, the author threw a hissy-fit and demanded that all of his works be deleted from the site[[/labelnote]] but still well remembered [[Wiki/SCPFoundation SCP-808]] (AKA Alice). An otherwise normal girl, her ability to communicate with machines is complicated by the fact that the machines consider her to be [[AGodAmI God]]. Fortunately an archived version exists [[http://web.archive.org/web/20100125115333/http://scp-wiki.wikidot.com/scp-808 here]].
* Several characters in the WhateleyUniverse can do this to one extent or another. At the SuperHeroSchool Whateley Academy, Ringo has this power, as does the hated Assistant to the Headmistress Ms. Hartford (so the school's computer network has security that DARPA envies) and even Samantha Everheart who is one of the schools security officers (but she has merged with a nanite supercomputer called Hive so she has an unfair advantage). Also the super villain Dr. Abel Palm has not only done this, but has magically encrypted his soul into AI viruses and is trying to destroy all humankind. Merry is a cyberpath who can dive into computer networks and do whatever she wants. Whatever. She. Wants.

* Out of all the people with PsychicPowers in ''Manga/KimagureOrangeRoad'', [[YamatoNadeshiko Manami]] is implied to have this specific skill. More exactly, she shows it off when [[spoiler: she secretly erases a videotape that contains proof of her younger sister's {{telepathy}}, without touching it.]]

* In ''EVEOnline'', it was originally intended for pod pilots to be able to control their ship directly with their thoughts, but most people ended up feeling sick and dizzy from using it, so they settled for a less direct (but presumably still mental) interface. There are, however, cybernetic mindlink implants that allow their user to directly interface with various parts of the ship, giving [[StatusBuff passive buffs]] to them and their party.

* ''Anime/ArmitageIII'': Naomi Armitage and Julian Moore (and possibly other Thirds) as part of being robots. Armitage remote controls a crane at one point and Julian hacks a computer by plugging a cable into his chest.
* A minor character in ''Manga/BungouStrayDogs'' can control any electronic device within his field of view perfectly and at a speed multiple times faster than what can be achieved naturally, as long as he's not in physical contact with it. He also needs to be in a state of physical and mental comfort.
