Movie: OMG Fast Memory !!1! Larix

It takes a temporary input (here, the pulled lever opening a door) and "remembers" it - keeps an output (pressure plate) active indefinitely. The output remains active after the input has turned off.

A practical use would be an invader-activated pressure plate which turns the magma pump on or causes the big security drawbridge to raise - and keeps it pumping/raised until a separate "all clear" is sent to turn it back off. This thing here uses the pathing rules of high-speed minecarts for operation and can remember four signals at once, each with its own separate output.

It's beautiful. Now build a glider ;)

But seriously, 225 windows, each of which needed to be built with the components in the correct order, and which would've been difficult to revise in case of error, just for a flashy display. Very dwarven.
