The top October 2015 tech trends include self-balancing hoverboards, organic tech boutiques and all-natural algae biofuels.

The stunning self-balancing hoverboard designed by Hoverboard Technologies is powered by a 5,000-watt motor and can attain a top speed of 26-kilometers-per-hour with a maximum range of 16-kilometers. The futuristic technology is centered by a single wheel, which allows for easy control and mimics the feeling of hovering.

Interestingly, the city of Fukushima recently developed a biofuel technology based on seaweed. Positive features of this development include the speed at which the algae can be produced, its ability to be used in cooler climates and the fact that the seaweed product does not compete with the region's economic interests (as opposed to sugar or corn).

The top October 2015 tech trends point to the various applications across fields for futuristic, cutting edge technology.
