Technopathy or Cyberpathy is the psychic ability to sense and control the functions of electronic devices and technology requiring only physical or mental contact with the device, to potentially override security codes and infiltrate an installation with ease by manipulating any electronic device, or sense the presence of electronics (even artificial intelligence) from far away.
Technokinesis is closely related to, and may encompass aspects of Cyberkinesis.
Known Evolved Humans
- Micah Sanders naturally possesses this ability.
A technopathic has the ability to control technology, this includes computers, robots, machines, etc. so one who has mastered their technopathic abilities may be able to control a great number of machines from a remote location. With this capability they could handle a small army of machines entirely alone.
Micah's power of technopathy seems to work with or without contact with electronics. He has been able to access the technology of broken items as well as working items. He describes his power as talking to machines. He can identify even the slightest signals in technology and uses electronics around him for tracking purposes.
Micah manipulated traffic signals without touching them, but he was also using Niki's cell phone to track Monica's at the time. He also controlled a computer without actually touching it. However, his hand was only a few inches away from it. As of yet, it is not clear whether Micah has developed the ability to remotely control systems or to channel his ability through the cell phone network. He seems to have developed enough control over his ability that he can control systems at short range, however.
