New AOC monitor: A display on a rally car cockpit

Several unusual monitors have already been published under the AOC brand, which were characterized mainly by an eccentric stand. However, the recently announced PD27 again raises the bar of unconventionality. The supporting structure is inspired by the cage of a race car.
