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.

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. :)
