This feature provides displays that are intended to complement the device's main display while providing a non-disruptive experience. The solution includes at least three means of providing a discreet display: non-visible spectrum light waves such as infrared (IR), heat, and depth sensing. This solution leverages the fact that IR light is invisible to the naked eye, thereby providing new and creative use cases to all mobile devices.

The core idea is to use one of the above means of creating a non-visible display. The discreet display uses a smart glass-like wearable or visual filter to interpret the inputs and simulate a screen (maybe with color) to display only to the user.
