The Independent Center for Intercultural Creation of Appropriate Technology (C.A.C.I.T.A.) is a Mexican makerspace which helps communities develop technologies that allow them to be more self-sufficient. [Thanks, Phil]

      Nonsense, cacita doesn’t have a meaning but it could be interpreted as an alternative spelling of “casita” which means “little house”. Native spanish speaker here…

    look, CASITAS have a beatiful and philantropic objetive; by general knowledge in USA the native can have commun tecnology like electric energy and other think that we give for sure; but here in mexico the native don’t have nothing, in fact isn’t considerated as a mexican. CASITA try to build things that can make the same as a common tecnology but without electric energy but that is all, CASITA isn’t a makerspace, the people that “works” there isn’t person with standart tecnology knowledge, to my CASITAS is only a workshop were you go to build anything that can be moved with a bicycle.
