In my honest opinion, there is no way. As a person who keeps dream journals from time to time I hate to sound close minded on this but the problem is
that this can be used for wrong purposes. All they have to do is say, "This machine can read people's minds." Now they convince the majority of
this through whatever seems to pass as good evidence/surveys/"studies". And now they program the machine to show whatever they want to show. That
thing cannot read anybodies dreams, but it can draw lines and pictures, whatever the programmer wants it to.
Nobody will ever be able to know what someone else is thinking, for sure anyway. They can make educated guesses and sometimes be right, sometimes be
effective. You can even ask someone if they were thinking of the number 5, and now they say "yes I was!" they could be lying to you and you would
never know if you actually read their mind or not. You would never know for sure.
edit: also how does it plan to record dreams that stretch time itself. 5 minute dreams that occur over 3 hours of sleep, or those rare week long
dreams that occur over the span of a night? Will they start downloading the dream and say "Oh, 5 kilobytes, a little dream." And then one day they
get one, "Oh crap, 300 megabytes, that's a doozy.."
