You are... schtupid!
— The Medic on superior intelligence
The Einstein is a cosmetic item for the Medic. It is a loose white wig named after famous scientist Albert Einstein, with it somewhat resembling his hair and Emmett Brown's hair, a character from Back to The Future.
This item can only be worn around Halloween or during a Full Moon; at other times of the year, it does not appear in gameplay, unless the server has Halloween mode enabled. However, it can be equipped at any time and can still be viewed on the loadout screen even when it is not visible during games.
