I think you mean the closed-cell foam pieces various
sets, most of them based on angles 360/5 and 360/10.
They're made by a small company called Tessellations
in (I think) Arizona; I don't have the address on me,
but will try to look it up later.

They are about to come out with a set of Penrose tiles,
as soon as Penrose's copyright expires on May 31.
