I'm not sure that game with king, moving as queen is playable enough to be 'future of chess', but it's interesting. Pawns are changed, they got duble-step. It's modest change, especially because of en-passant. And thus, looks like, 'future of chess' should be without en-passant!
But changing move of knight is probably really future of chess (knight, by the way, is only piece, wich have no even little changes!)! There is other game, wich claims to be 'future of chess', wich also changes knight's move. It's Munch chess, invented by Nagova von Munchausen (baron Munchausen's offspring!) (i'm not sure that he knows about other chess variants). It have several so-called complexity levels ('as in videogames'). Knight is replaced by two-headed knight. It makes 2 knight's leaps (second leap may be in any direction!). Can make only 1 knight's leap or not, depends on complexity level. In 'easier level' knight can make up to 48 moves, in 'harder level' up to 56! Another complexity level was suggested by Nagova Munchausen's grand son Nikita: three-headed knight! Several types of knights may be used in same game.
