unfortunately you'd have to build it yourself. if you can do this a
linux or bsd computer acting as a transparent Tor proxy can route
everything from your ethernet card over Tor (or drop/filter it.)

may even be a tiny linux router with dual ethernet ports for a
transparent inline portable Tor proxy appliance powered by USB
(gumstix, now defunct yoggie, etc.)

be warned: not only is this technically difficult, but the risks using
an entire system in transparent Tor mode are difficult to identify and
address. Browser Bundle Firefox and Torbutton extension is recommended
for a reason!
