Check out this video that demos some of the capabilities made possible by the LiDAR scanner on Apple's new iPad Pro.

The LiDAR Scanner on the 2020 iPad Pro measures the distance to surrounding objects up to 5 meters away, works both indoors and outdoors, and operates at the photon level at nano-second speeds. New depth frameworks in iPadOS combine depth points measured by the LiDAR Scanner, data from both cameras and motion sensors, and is enhanced by computer vision algorithms on the A12Z Bionic for a more detailed understanding of a scene. The tight integration of these elements enables a whole new class of AR experiences on iPad Pro.

Every existing ARKit app automatically gets instant AR placement, improved motion capture and people occlusion. Watch developers from Hot Lava, Shapr3D, Complete Anatomy, and IKEA Place demonstrate these features in the video below.
