A sequence, scene, or overt emphasis on the design and/or workings of machines, gadgets, and vehicles, with the intent of showing admiration and possibly invoking audience lust for the items in question. Often features smooth pans across ultra-glossy exteriors, a sequence of parts moving in intricate and complex patterns, lingering close-ups of key components, or highly detailed descriptions and diagrams of how a device is put together.
It appears most commonly in visual works, such as movies, television, animated series, comic books and manga, where the creators put in extra effort to focus on details that might not influence the plot. In literature, Technology Porn may appear as paragraphs that go into greater detail than necessary about the tech, such as describing at length the interlocking mechanisms of a watch, or highly detailed and elaborate technical diagrams.
Any Cool Starship, Cool Tank, Cool Gun, or other type of cool machine is likely to be an example of Technology Porn. Sometimes referred to by Super Robot Wars fans as "Ryusei Porn". An Activation Sequence is also a likely time to indulge in this.
For tech geeks in the audience, this can be real Fanservice... even if it's not realistic but sufficiently cool.
A Sister Trope to Scenery Porn, Food Porn, Costume Porn, Gun Porn, Description Porn, Fighter-Launching Sequence, Creation Sequence, Schematized Prop, Robotic Assembly Lines.
Compare/Contrast Techno Babble.
While this may induce Nerdgasms, note that this is not Rule 34 with robots (aka that Fetish). Nor is it about technology used to deliver porn. If you came here looking for a trope about literal pornographic usages of technology, you're probably looking for Robosexual, Sex Bot or Power Perversion Potential. Though Bender might disagree on all points.

Megas XLR is an homage to classic video games, 90's mecha anime and kaiju movies, and American hot-rod culture. why wouldn't the giant robot hot rod be filled with more pop-out gadgets, clever devices, special attacks, gleaming metal, and industrial hydraulics than you can fit into it's two season run-time?!

Puella Magi Madoka Magica, in its happier moments, lavishes attention on technology and onro the futuristic cityscape of Mitakihara. This eventually serves to set up Mood Dissonance between the outwardly sleek, high-tech world of the series, and the dark and horrible things lurking just beneath the surface.

Since Lyrical Nanoha takes more notes from Humongous Mecha anime than Magical Girl shows, it's no surprise that this is present. The Transformation Sequence focuses just as much time on the individual components of their Devices snapping together in place as much it does on the characters themselves for one, and every time a Device switches forms, it will dominate the screen while it goes through the process.

The battle against Ramiel in Neon Genesis Evangelion. Particularly the Rebuild version.
And the battle against Iruel, which was left out of Evangelion 2.0.
Unit 00's berserk incident. Hell, even Unit 01's first Rebuild launch counts, what with the copious amounts of hi-res CGI. And Unit 02 engaging Beast Mode.
Both Yoshiyuki Sadamoto and Hideaki Anno worked on the first Macross anime (see below), and Anno also was one of the key artists for Miyazaki's Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind with its lush and detailed tech, before founding Studio Gainax. No surprise here.

Ghost in the Shell Series Creator Masamune Shirow holds a degree in engineering and the original manga contains countless side notes that explain how many of the machines and mechanisms are supposed to work. Both of the Oshii films contain several scenes which can be considered hardcore technology porn, and have massively influenced the animation style of the company who made the films, Production I.G. The two season series does them to a lesser extent.
Any incarnation is sure to show several scenes of both the main characters and the antagonists carefully assembling and preparing their high-tech equipment.
Both films start with highly artistic scenes showing the assembly of androids. Female, of course. And naked. Up close. Technology Porn for real.
It's a cyborg being fitted to a prosthetic body in the first movie, actually...There's deliberate contrast between the two, as the making of a cyborg is very mechanical, while the birth of a gynoid has an organic feel, especially with the initial formation of the neurochip, resembling an egg being fertilized.
The second movie includes a several minute long scene showing nothing but a plane circling a massive cathedral with its segmented wings flapping in the wind like feathers. And then there's the horde of naked robo-chicks spinning and jumping through the corridors while decapitating armed guards. And the virtual assault on the facilities internal computer defense. And...
Obsessive detail for futuristic machines and weapons is a recurring trait in Masamune Shirow's creations. He even has a recurring small arms manufacturer, Seburo, which shows up in his various works.
As are his insanely legged and chiseled female protagonists, especially in his recent H-works. Which again bridge Technology Porn with, well, normal porn.

Mass Effect has an in-game codex which goes to great lengths to explain how technology in the game's universe works, most of it related to element zero. It even goes so far as to describe what FTL travel looks like to an outside observer, and explains how spaceship stealth systems work. It furthermore describes the weaponization of Eezo, its effect on biology, and how the interstellar 'extranet' allocates bandwidth on its priority levels.

A literary example would be the various Star Trek Technical Manual books. Hundreds of pages of diagrams, technical schematics, and plans for vehicles that don't exist. The Ships of the Line calenders and collections are basically pinup collections for Starship porn.

In every Iron Man movie, when Tony Stark suits up.
In Iron Man 1: A legion of computer-controlled waldos, cranes, hoses and parts dance all over, building his suit around him with lavish close-ups of automated ratchets buttoning it up. Reaches a crescendo when his chest piece closes with a pneumatic hiss, and climaxes with Iron Man's mask slamming shut and his visor's eyes lighting up. An earlier scene when Tony gets ready to try-out the Mk.II suit has a 360 degree pan as Tony runs a diagnostic to "test flight surfaces," so many shiny moving fiddly-bits. *drool*
In Iron Man 2, one scene shows Tony putting on the movie version of the Suitcase Armor. Also a brief scene at the beginning when he appears at the Expo and has his suit smoothly disassembled, a far cry from the awkward sequence in the previous movie.
In The Avengers, his suit assembly rig is a big upright wheel on a walkway that disassembles Tony's Ironman suits as he walks along it without obstructing his movement — he just lands on the roof of Stark Tower and casually strolls into his penthouse. The amount of motion tracking technology and smoothly operating mechanics such a device would require is insane... But it looks so cool
The Mark VII armor (with cool features like panels on his chest that open up and allow repulsors to provide more vertical thrust) and its emergency deployment mechanism: The suit flies to Tony, locks in on his wristbands, pulls in and wraps itself around him.
Iron Man 3 features the Mark 42 suit, which consists of individual pieces that can fly to and attach to the user on their own. Also, all of Tony's armor suits can now open up, allowing him to "enter" and "exit" them without hassle just like a car.
In Age of Ultron, the Hulkbuster is a suit for his suit, and Individual pieces of armor fly to and attach to the Ironman suit. He even built an orbit-based flying garage for all the additional armor modules so he can replace broken parts within seconds.
In Captain America: Civil War, he has an Impossibly Compact Folding repulsor gauntlet in a Gadget Watch and an entire suit of Instant Armor hidden in a helicopter that clicks onto him at the push of a single button — the pointer finger of the suit even slides out around the button he pushes.
In Infinity War, he's said "screw it" to all the support equipment and just carries a load of Nanomachines in a chest piece.
Heck, forget about the armour, just look at his completely automated holographic interfaces! Or the computers he can access anywhere in his mansion, including on a coffee table! Or his personalized PDA that he used to hack the Pentagon! Iron Man may as well be renamed Technology Porn, The Movie!

Samus' entrance in Metroid Prime was pretty much made to show off her power suit in glorious 3d. Echoes and Corruption both mirrored this scene, with Corruption also treating us to an extended landing sequence for Sammy's new gunship. The rest of the Metroid Prime trilogy has some intricate high-tech looking mechanisms complete with tron lights in the intro, slowly zooming out. It doesn't reveal it's the inside of Samus's arm cannon until the player starts a game.

Halo 4 gets one in Spartan Ops, at least in the cutscenes. The new Spartan-IVs get sexy Aerotrim-style suiting rigs reminiscent of the Iron Man rigs. Seems the coolest way to suit up is to step into a rig and have the armor assembled via arms waldos and whatchamahoosits. Unfortunately, Master Chief is bigger than a Spartan-IV, so technicians have to take off his armor by hand using the mechanism arms. It's a bit odd that these mechanisms are compatible with Mark VI MJOLNIR armor, being literally a generation older.

Mobile Suit Gundam's first battle starts with Amuro reading Project V manual for Gundam complete with rather detailed diagrams. Supplementary materials go even further with detailed explanation of science behind almost every tech used and assembly instructions for HG model kits are often broken up with illustrations showing various internal working of Mobile Suit in questions along with description of various parts functions.

The StarCraft II trailer. Look at the comments in the Iron Man example above. One magazine editor commented after seeing it that he finally understood why it took so long to build ''one'' marine in the original game.

In Final Fantasy VIII, basically every FMV that isn't directly related to the characters is either technology porn or Scenery Porn. Exemplified by this FMV.

In Dead Space 2, whenever Isaac exchanges his RIG for another at one of the in-game stores, it's always accompanied by a short sequence of him flexing his arms, sections of the suit moving, and the helmet closing into place.

In Transformers Cybertron twenty years later, seeing Primus transform caused quite a few jaws to drop in the fandom. Lesser examples include Optimus Prime's Super Mode sequence, and any shot of him as a flying fire truck.

The only part of Haruhi Suzumiya that was made in 3D (well, obvious 3D), was the futuristic videogame "world." Tons of ships and views of torpedoes being loaded and general "technology smut."
