Chen San-yuan first made headlines last year and was featured in a BBC after being spotted around town with an array of 11 smartphones mounted to the handlebars of his bicycle. He was only planning on adding four more phones, but now, that has increased to sixty four.

Chen was first hooked on the game by his grandson and that quickly spiraled into an obsession. He spendt up to 20 hours a day, 5-6 days a week playing until his phone’s battery was exhausted. So, he came up with the solution to purchase more smartphones, mount them on his bike, and use a mobile charger to keep the devices juiced up. The rest is history, and who knows how many he will have by this time next year.
