Reuse command or search from history in VIM

VIM command history

I just came across http://vim.wikia.com/wiki/Using_command-line_history from a tweet.

In Normal mode press q: and the command (:) history will appear.

Movement with j or k moves up and down and hitting Enter reexecutes the command where the cursor stands.
The same works with the search (/) history q/.
