1. A touch panel, comprising:
a substrate,
a first electrode disposed on the substrate, the first electrode comprising first unit electrodes disposed in a first direction and electrically connected to each other; and
a second electrode disposed on the substrate, the second electrode comprising second unit electrodes disposed in a second direction intersecting the first direction and electrically connected to each other,
wherein:
the first unit electrodes and the second unit electrodes comprise a mesh pattern comprising irregular polygonal electrodes disposed without a gap therebetween;
the irregular polygonal electrodes comprise randomly selected candidate points disposed around each lattice point of a virtual regular lattice structure connected by a metal wiring; and
each of the irregular polygonal electrodes and the virtual regular lattice structure have the same number of vertices.
