Pretty cool. 
The thing that grabbed my attention most was the sudden counteraction to the rapid spin. 
When it happened some text briefly flashed up about 'yo-yo de-spin' which I'd never heard of so I looked it up, very interesting!

I love the idea behind the yo-yo de-spin.  So simple yet very effective.

If you go to their website they explain what the payload is, some VERY cool stuff stuff there.
