IPad Pro Lidar scanner & Depthmaps


My 2013 iPad needs updating and I was reading up on what's out now as not really clued up with Apple products.

The iPad pro jumped out as it has a Lidar scanner built in and that got me thinking about depthmaps for krpano tours. Never worked with them before and don't have Everpano but was wondering..... in theory would it be possible to scan a room with the iPad and extract a depthmap to use on a 360 pano taken in the same spot? I guess it wouldn't have to be super detailed but enough to allow a small amount of head movement on a Rift S to make it 'feel' 3d or perhaps to enhance the 360 when viewing with a Oculus Go or a regular browser.

Thought I'd ask as the newer iPad pro's are not the most affordable but could be if works with KRPano and can entice new clients *rolleyes*


Had to edit post a few times as my phone made the format go wild with line breaks.
