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".
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.

Galaxy of Fear never goes into high levels of detail about tech, but there's an in-universe example in The Nightmare Machine, when the mechanically inclined Zak finds rare droid parts and everything he wants to see in a workshop, and excitedly chirps about this and that while his sister has the same blank reaction non-tech lovers often have to this kind of thing.

From The Avengers:
The tradition of Iron Man's Technology Porn continues, where Iron Man has a walkway on the Stark Tower that takes his suit off, piece by piece, as he walks along it without obstructing his movement in any way. The amount of motion tracking technology and smoothly operating mechanics such a device would require is insane... But it looks so cool
The Avengers also features 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 is a rocket that flies to Tony and, once it locks in on Tony's position by lining up laser beams with discrete wristbands hes wearing, pulls in and unfolds around him.
There's also the Helicarrier's transformation from sea mode to flight mode, plus it turning invisible.
Close-ups of the mechanics of Hawkeye's arrowheads deserve a mention.

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?!

In every Iron Man movie, when Tony Stark suits up.
The first: 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* There's also that one lovely scene with Tony getting de-suited/undressed by said robots.
The sequel delivers a wonderful scene showing Tony putting on the movie version of the Suitcase Armor.
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!

Since Magical Girl 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.

Pacific Rim has scenes in it that seriously threaten to steal the title of "Technolgy Porn: The Movie" right out from under Iron Man. The Jaegers are truly beautiful pieces of sci-fi engineering, and any scene involving them is pure, unadulterated technology porn. Inside the cockpits, their assembly and maintenance, the way they fight is a techhead's dream.

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.

In the same vein than Kerbal Space Program, Wayward Terran Frontier (a recent independent game), focus 80% of its gameplay over designing the inner working of increasinbly bigger and bigger space Warship.

Space Battleship Yamato 2199, full stop. The rest of the franchise probably as well, but its visual style is just too Leiji Matsumoto-specific and his early-Seventies look seems really dated for some, despite being a conscious aesthetic choice. 2199, OTOH, updated it with more mainstream stylings.

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.

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.

Halo 4 gets one in Spartan Ops, at least in the cutscenes. The new SPARTAN I Vs 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.

Parodied in Spaceballs, with an overly long ship passing. Mel Brooks says on the DVD commentary that if he could've gotten away with it, he would've had nothing but 90 minutes of the ship passing the camera. Unfortunately for him, the studio insisted there be a plot.

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.
