You can communicate directly with technology, without having to directly access its input and output devices such as screens, keyboards, and buttons.
For example, if you interface with someone else’s locked smartphone, you will have to know their password to do much. If you interface with a car that is already running, you can control it (as turning the car on is the security check).
Spend an Action and target a device within [[range]]. You may now communicate with the technology whether or not it exposes an interface. Concentration must be maintained or the connection will be lost.
This Power does not grant new functionality to the device, nor does it grant you any ability to bypass security measures unless the device is already unlocked or logged in. For example, you may use it to control cars that have already been turned on, phones that are unlocked, or access emails on a computer that is already logged in. It grants you access to its standard set of input/output devices (monitor, keyboard, touchscreen, buttons, etc).

The Technician has implanted themselves with a chip that allows them to interface directly with technology, even at a distance.
Spend an Action and target a computer-based device within 20 feet, no roll or Exertion required. You may now communicate with the technology whether or not it exposes an interface. Concentration must be maintained or the connection will be lost.
Due to their special affinity for explosives, the Demolitionist is able to remotely impose their will on an explosive device, causing it to detonate (or theoretically, to disarm, but why would you ever want to STOP an explosion?). Any time they use this power to detonate an explosive, the Demolitionist undergoes what seems like a sneeze, except that steam shoots out of their ears and their skin blazes the color of a hot fire, before rapidly cooling off back to a normal skin tone.
Spend an Action and target an explosive device within 300 feet, no roll or Exertion required. You may now communicate with the bomb whether or not it exposes an interface, and regardless of how simple or complex the detonation technology is. Concentration must be maintained or the connection will be lost.
