I find a very simple, inexpensive test of rangefinder accuracy test comes
delivered with most humans. Measure off your normal stride, focus on
various objects, note the distance, and pace it off, comparing accuracy to
actual quite simply, and cheaply. ;)
I don't know if anyone made a device as you described. 
You could purchase an old rangefinder accessory for a few dollars in an
used camera dealer, test it to actual distances, and use it to compare
focus of a camera body. These are usually not too large, and are
surprisingly accurate.
