All PUSH/PULL signs do is make you feel like a tit after you get it wrong. I just mindlessly try and open the door in the direction my brain assumes it moves, and only then will I read the sign, but by then I have already figured out I got it wrong. 

For whatever reason glass doors are the worst offenders when it comes to this.

Jim Morrison knew a lot about the doors. I prefer the things known. :)

Loved the bit about "discoverabilty" and technology. Swipe, tap, double tap.... triple tap? 

There really should be no triple tap.

That door would probably confuse most people. :)
