I have been thinking about this topic and find it quite interesting.

For a tangent in the range of 45° to 90° (1 to ∞), the half tangent ranges from (0.41 to 1).
You could think of this in many different ways. For example as an infinite increase in precision. Or, since bisecting an angle is s constructible process (it can be done using a compass and a straight edge), it is conceivable to have mechanical machine which with a theoretical 0 thickness parts can infinity magnify a force. Of course in practice the magnification will be limited by the >0 thickness of the parts.
I haven't been able to think of an electronic equivalent but it could exist and would be quite interesting, at least in a theoretical sense.
