Right, it's the early hours of Tuesday, and I'm thinking of random crap.

Basically, in my head im imagining two people running at each other head on. They both then go into a wallspin on each other, using oneanothers hands as though they were a wall.

Assuming they both applied the same amount of forward momentum, it would be as stable as a wall [correct me if im wrong?] and you would therefore be able to wallspin the other person...
I dont really know where im going with this, or why it's even in my mind, haha.

I just want to know, do you think this could work? Why would it fail? What needs to be equal, what needs to be different?

Discuss, im intrigued. :P

EDIT:



This is an old clip of me, performing a wallspin on a mirror.
For those who do not know what im thinking of, imagine that my reflection is also a person. You see the reflected hands and my hands meet at the mirror. Imagine the reflected hands were real hands, and the two forces were pushing against each other.

Also, apologies if this is the wrong part of the forum. I didnt have a clue where to post something of this gayness. :lol:

Possible but difficult, I've seen people do wall flips of eachs other feet, but thing with that both of them still had one foot on the floor on intitial impact .

No idea, getting hands on hands would be pretty tough... right place, right pressure applied etc.

Why would you want to do it anyways>? Sounds a bit suspect to me!

Guy on guy wallspin action!

<_<

The science is dodgy. It would basically have to be two people doing weird side flips whilst holding hands. Could still work though.

Im not gonna say impossible because id have to attempt it myself to really get a feel for it.
But i think highly unlikely because you hands would not be able to push and twist with the hands as you do with a wall.
Basically imagine trying to do a wallspin on a rotating wall.

It would be closest to two people doing a side flip while holding hands, so definetly possible.
