I see Matterport offers functionality with some consumer level 360 cameras now. Has anyone tried this? Are there any examples out there?

Yes. There have been several discussions (and examples shared) on this topic.

Please see WGAN Forum discussions that are tagged either:

This is a decent overview of the Insta360 One X working with Matterport by Ben Schmanke if that helps.clickable text

I used my Insta 360 One X camera for a month and did about 10 home scans with it before getting my Pro 2 Camera. Below is a tour with the Insta 360 camera. It's not as clear as the Matterport cameras. Much more grain in the image and much less detail when you zoom in. I found that I needed to have my scan positions closer together. When passing through doorways, I could only move the camera about 12" - 18" between scans. I also had to do a lot more walking with the 360 camera. I move the camera, then walk out of the room, then trigger the camera, then walk back in and move it. With the Matterport camera, I can just stay there and walk around it. The Matterport needs about 1/4 less scans per home to cover the same size home, so it takes me less time to scan a home. I also never have connection problems with the Matterport camera, but sometimes, I lose connection between the ipad and the the 360 camera when I am in the next room or behind a wall, so I have to reposition before shooting. The Matterport camera just does not have any connection problems and most of the time I am standing right next to it.

Here is my last Insta 360 tour before getting my Pro 2 camera...
