Should humans ever limit the development of a technology?

What grounds must a technology break in order to be declared illegal? There are 3D printers that can assemble buildings, flying robots that can survey countries, and artificial organs that can dramatically extend the average human lifetime-


should the development of any technology be limited to provide more opportunities to human workforces, restrict weapons development and to force people to live naturally?


Please observe, explain and illustrate.
