Can you help me find examples of modular building components?

so far I've found
lego
duplo
kinex
snobe origami
bloxes

drilled paddlepop sticks

i also seem to have a memory of a rounded triangle shape in plastic/metal with bits cut out that you can attach together at right angles? no idea what they might be called. Any other suggestions out there?

Stickle Bricks are a rather poor modular system

Then you've got molecular model kits & related systems

What you are think of is Meccano.  It has changed a lot in recent years, but it used to be nothing but metal plates in a range of standard sizes, held together with nuts and bolts.
