"We love technology and always being connected. You can chat, tweet, like and engage with 'friends' all over the world," writes Morinaga at the official website. "But sometimes our devices take up too much of our time and attention. Often they distract us from the things we really want to focus on like pursuing our goals, enjoying a moment with friends, appreciating the world around us."
