Pretty much anything.
Wow, how can a computer compute?
Wow, how can a (cell) phone, or computer for that matter, connect to any other device anywhere in the world in milliseconds?
Wow, how can we build big ass skyscrapers with all kinds of fancy architecture?
Wow, how could the early civilizations do pretty much the same without all our fancy technology?
Wow, how can Google calculate the shortest or fastest route from anywhere to anywhere by car, public transport, bike or foot (and so accurately)?
Wow, how can anyone write decent code in JavaScript? Actually, I haven't seen this for myself yet and I'm not ready to believe this exists.
Wow, how can Google search through millions of websites for some random string in milliseconds.
Wow, you already mentioned Shazam, who does the same but with music, WOW!

I know it's all perfectly logical.
Some physics, some chemistry, some math...
But wow.

And that's just some human achievements.
