Best mechanical/physics puzzles. - an IFDB Poll

I had a lot of fun with the underground trolley puzzle in Axe of Kolt by Larry Horsfield. Any other games that feature cool mechanical devices, Rube Goldberg machines or solutions that rely on using the laws of physics (gravity of course, but maybe also optics/reflection, magnetism,...)?
By no means does this puzzle have to be the centerpiece of the game, it just has to be elaborate and really cool.
