This idea implies that a piece can transmute to become another piece by using up a move on the position where it sits. In this case one turns the rook upside down, and then it functions like a Korean Cannon. This idea, I believe, could be used in many combinations. In this case it works very well, I've tried it out in my Zillions program. I don't know what to call this group of pieces (transmutation pieces?). Are there any other examples?
