    The reason they couldn't get it simultaneous; when 2 people try to let go at the same time there will always be a delay between them bc of perceptional difference. If 1 does both I bet he could get it almost perfectly. Imo

    Really interesting how this cup works, it doesn't actually spin the water itself but uses the arms at the bottom to create a suction which then pulls the water so far down that it crashes through creating air bubbles which then gets stirred by the arms
