Q & H: Designing Conversational UX for The History Channel
Q & H (Question and The History) is a demo of a web application for History Channel. We participated A&E History Channel Hackathon and suggested this idea that people easily access to informative contents of History Channel official website. By asking some easygoing life question to famous and infamous historic figures, users navigate through the hidden contents on The History Channel.

How to create digital storytelling contents that guide users to seamlessly navigate The History Channel's current contents in a playful way.
This project was created in A+E Networks The History Channel Hackathon which was an 48-hours design competition held by NYC Media Lab, A+E Networks at The New School. The idea of Q & H is to get advice from historic figures. When users type their questions, they can get quotes as advices from both great people and villains in the history. This shows the idea that there are always contradictions in the history and our lives. Our Q&H team (Me, Seung When Lee, Mengyu Cao) received Runner-up: The Most Creative Idea award from A+E Networks.
