I think so, but the biggest influence would be when the ability to 'download' information (rather than learn in school) becomes commonplace. I think in such a scenario people would mature much faster and so it would be logical at that point to lower the adult age.

bY "adult age" you mean age of MAJORITY, right ufo?

Sure, that can be brought lower if people learn faster.. but theres got to be a legal childhood left, even if high school diplomas can be won by mental download as young as 10. If all kids in the future will be child prodigees, they will still BE kids too.

I can see 16 year olds gettin the vote by 2100 (besides by then all voting will probaly be online - so any clever net rat could pose as adult & vote if he knew how to beat the age verifications!)

In 1 of the Legion of Super heros comics I read years ago, age of majority in teh 30th century was 14.
