I feel the same, modern technology feels boring and doesn't excite me in the way it used to only a decade ago.

I'm not sure if this is due to changing perception due to age as Douglas Adams suggested or if its because technology has become more a black box inside a walled garden as a solution looking for a problem with successive developments making smaller and smaller leaps often with the benefits tilted towards faceless corporate giants that market their baby steps as ground breaking.

As such I still get excited by projects such as James's Lego bricks, Charlie Harrington's developing on an Apple Macintosh SE/30 Computer, the yearly DOScember retro computing hackathon, working on vintage 8 and 16 bit systems, etc.
