Strong magnet is a good idea, though will need to be very strong, but how about two pins and jam them against the broken part and pull it out. Are you able to get the pins on both sides of the key to apply the pressure?

would not be able to get two pins in the barrel

If you got the barrel out, are you able to thumb the backside of the barrel with a rubber hammer to get this to force out?

There's a small electronic circuit on the backside of barrel. If I knew where to buy the barrel and keys I would think this to be an option.

Have the exact model number with you and get them to locate the key barrel for you.
