How do I create a "picture in picture" window?

Get help using Construct 2

This seems like something that may need a plugin of some sort, but I'm curious: Is there a way that I could create a sort of "picture in picture" effect, in which a small window inside the larger layout would show something off screen?

For example, I have a platformer where you can throw a ball. If the ball goes off-screen, it would show a window displaying the ball's position, so you can still know roughly where it is.
