A new Kickstarter has been launched for a magnetic quick-release strap developed by the German company Spinn. 

"Camera-carrying systems" such as straps, holsters and harnesses are a necessity when it comes to carrying around your camera, but they can often be cumbersome and get in the way of shooting. The Swift-Lock by Spinn looks to combat this by using a magnetic clip in an easy-to-use system that takes seconds to clip and unclip your camera from the strap.
