    Augmented and Virtual reality based videos are the future of corporate training. Recently, there has been a trend of Virtual Reality based video coaching in corporate world to provide hands-on experience to employees using digital tools. This can be time saving and cost effective. VR can easily integrate with video coaching and enhance the efficacy of corporate training. However, is it possible to record AR and VR with your cell phone? Is there any new app which can be a substitute of specialty equipment?
