There is a device out there, but I don't recall the name.  It's made for DJ's 
and is about the size of a TV remote control.  There are 2 different 
models... one gives you a visual display of tempo, the other ouputs MIDI 

For some reason I remember it being called Voyager Beat Extractor or 
something. The logo is a red planet with a ring of LED's around it.  Sorry 
that I can't remember the exact name.
