Subj: It Comes from Action Comics # 332 (Jan., 1966), But It's Not What the Luthor Action Figure Is Wearing

    But what it is is a mental projector. Luthor can load a disk into it to record memories to it and conversely, use it to replay memories.

I TOOK A look at that YouTube review. The reviewer is incorrect in identifying the headgear as Luthor's mental projector, but it was an easy mistake to make. The mental projector is virtually identical to the time-space thought scanner from Superman # 167 . . . except that the mental projector was red. (The reviewer himself points this out.) The time-space thought scanner, on the other hand, was blue, as is the accessory to the Luthor action figure.

I've attached a couple of panels from Superman # 167 to illustrate.
